the best - and partially only - way to get around is a trip on water: with motor boat (look for alfred Kyasiimire and his boat "kyabakasa" - greet from "kirangara" thomas) or with canoe (look for the lame didus - he is a good driver!).

Byoona Amagara, Itambira Island. It used to be the nice budget place to stay with relaxed atmosphere, but this time is over. They claim it's a non-profit venture, where 100% of the proceeds are put into the local community through education and farming. This seems to be not true but just a advertisement. There are charges for everything including hot shower, charging mobile/camera, watching a movie, etc. They give you free transport to the island but you have to pay for your way back, which is strange. On negotiations about the price for a long stay, they were not willing to take any offer. Unfriendly.edit
